March 2012 – July 2013 Product Engineer
Putzmeister Background – Putzmeister is a global manufacturer of concrete and material placing equipment. The area I am responsible for is the concrete pumping boom trucks and the placing boom applications. The parent company is in Germany and is the source for most of the designs. The designs typically require some modification to meet the American markets. I have been involved in many mechanical designs and some hydraulics. Working with sheet metal, weldments large and small, and machined components. Because of the parent company being German there is a great deal of transition of drawings and technical documents required to stay updated to current changes.

Key Projects Worked On While at Radyne:
Briggs & Stratton: Worked on the design team that designed a heat treat system to harden the small engine crankshafts in three zones at one time in a single machine cycle. This project required that customer specifications were utilized for purchased items when applicable.
American Axle: This project was to design and build a heat treat machine for heat treating two automotive rear stub axle shafts in one machine cycle. Worked with the sales department on the front end of the project to assist in the costing for the proposal because of the necessity to incorporate the customer specifications for purchased items and design practices. Continued work with the Vice President of Sales to provide weekly 4-Square timeline and monthly executive review meetings, both formal and working meetings, to the customer for the duration of the project. The end design resulted in two mirrored machines to meet the customer’s production requirements and integrate workflow of the work cell.
Snap On tools: This project was to design and build a heat treat machine for the hardening and temper of socket extension shafts. The unit was unique in that it was incorporated in an automated cell with robotics and that it straightened the extension shaft during the heat treating process. Interface with the robot automation house was an essential part of this project.
